Again, compare AU to the entire list of Upper Class and see where they rank. Doing it with just teams in the SEC is dumb. You're taking points away from a team for competing against the teams you're calling the best and still doing as good as many of the teams you aren't arguing about who are in lesser conferences.
TURDS ALL UP IN THIS MUG. /// "2010 Auburn Tigers, my favorite team. Unbeaten in all ways." -- Dan Wetzel, April 4, 2013, 6:29 p.m.
i get your angle, i just don't agree w/ it. elite means the best of the best. auburn is not the best of the best.
and if you want to compare against texas, here's that breakdown:
auburn - 1 mnc, 3 ten/+ win seasons, 2 bcs bowls
texas - 1 mnc, 8 ten/+ win seasons, 4 bcs bowls
you're not as good as texas, and i don't consider texas elite because we don't have multiple national championships over the last 10 years when 3 other teams do.
While that may be true, you only have to beat Oklahoma every year and the rest of your conference as a whole is not on a top level. You should be elite considering it is a two team conference.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
auburn - 1 mnc, 2 conference championships
texas - 1 mnc, 2 conference championships
Where it matters, the last decade has been equivalent.
To me, it's all a matter of how far back you want to go. 25 years? 10 years? 5 years?
5 Years - Bo Pelini bringing the program back to a respectable level.
10 Years - Callahan flushes our 35 year streak of bowl appearances.
25 - Osborne went 60-3 in his final five seasons as Nebraska's head coach, in bringing three national titles.
I don't think you'll find many (if any) Husker fans who argue we're a college power right now. I see Nebraska as a "traditional power," and think most of our fans do.
I'll buy it
I don't think there are a whole lot of programs that have won back-to-back national championships on two occasions. For the Huskers, it was 70-71, and 94-95.
Like I said -- We've got work to do to get respect again on the national level, but the history is there.
His article broke it down as Upper Class, Upper Middle Class, Middle Class, and Working Poor.
He took the Upper Class category a step further and broke it down as Blue Blood, Nouveau Riche, and Corporate Elite.
There are distinct differences between those three categories if you continue with the social class comparison.
I look at the article basically like this (I think this is what he meant by it):
Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas and USC
You would not be stunned if any of these teams won a national championship.
UPPER MIDDLE CLASS
Arkansas, Clemson, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Stanford, Texas A&M, UCLA, Virginia Tech, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin
While you may not be stunned if these teams find themselves there, it would take an upgrade in current status to do so -- and be somewhat surprising.
Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Boston College, BYU, Cal, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas State, Maryland, Michigan State, Missouri, N.C. State, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Syracuse, TCU, Texas Tech, Utah and Virginia
Would be surprising.
Baylor, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Duke, Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Northwestern, Rutgers, Temple, USF, Wake Forest, Washington State and Vanderbilt
Would be shocking.

Is that why AU has beaten Bama 7/10? 2 SEC and a Natty as well? With two perfect seasons.

You're wrong. The guy I quoted asked why Oregon was listed above LSU. My post was a response to his question. I know Auburn is a top program.
Assuming things only makes you an a** buddy.

Oregon is not listed above LSU. Both are listed as Upper Class. They're just listed in different subsections. Both rich - just different.

Haha a lot of crying MF in this thread.
That literally is the best thing I have seen all day. +1 sir
Lets get 1 thing straight.
UF has never had an undefeated season. Both of their NC's were 1 loss seasons.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
You're right. I even looked it up and still typo'd. My first mistake ever on TBB that I can recall.
It's something we hold over their heads on the reg. So when i saw that i was like "Hold the fvck up here..."
He has them in the poor category, because they are.
200 million spent in the last 3 years. i wouldn't call that poor. o yeah 52-14

i dunno why people outside of the sec think we are poor. we have alot of money we just ain't been very good for a while. Dan Mullen is changing that though. you would think a Michigan fan wouldn't have anything to say about miss state after the beating they took
Congrats, you spend a lot of money? How much revenue does Piss St. pull in?
Oh, yeah, MSUs' all time record is sub .500. That's pathetic. Your team sucks dude, historically and currently. You can post 52-14, but that isn't going to make Rich Rod Michigan's coach again or put MSU in a BCS bowl game.
im not sure but i know we get around 20 mill just from our tv contract then whatever we make on tickets etc. probably between 30 and 60 mill. you can say what you want but y'all got whipped by a sub .500 team. you're the one that said we were poor but then you got to bring up other stuff. so Stfu
